Trout this user


From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search
  • I am a tutor of the English language living and working in Virginia.
  • My interest in Wikipedia is to expand people's ready access to a worldwide knowledge base.
  • As an English tutor, I have a professional interest in increasing the quality of communication on English Wikipedia.

My declaration of interest (per WP:COI): I am an alumnus of Patrick Henry Community College (graduated 2010), and I am currently employed by the same college (I am not a work-study; I am actually on staff). As such, I obviously have a personal interest in the article on said community college. However, I try to avoid editing the article on PHCC (partly because I'm not sure exactly what my workplace's policy is on the matter). I detest academic boosterism, and if any of my edits to the article (or any Martinsville/Henry County-related articles, for that matter) come across as puffery, then you should see to it that I am thoroughly whacked with a wet trout (I have, for your convenience, added a button on the upper-right of my talk page expressly for that purpose, in fact).

(A little late, though). I've seen some of your work on the dispute resolution noticeboard and just wanted to tell you to keep up the good work! :) Whenaxis talk · contribs | DR goes to Wikimania! 20:48, 19 March 2012 (UTC)
